Orchid Jewelry, Plique a jour in the ARt Nouveaux style

Roberts Manufacturing Jeweler Inc.

Plique a jour  

French for "open to light," plique a jour is a technique in which open spaces in metal work are filled with transparent enamel, giving the appearance of stained glass.  Art Nouveau-like in appearance, plique a jour is extremely delicate and colorful.  If you want to read more about this type of jewelry, click here.   Some jewelrymakers believe that there are currently no US practitioners of the art of plique a jour, but as you can see from the following, that is not true; Linda Roberts has been producing pieces from silver jewelry since for several years.

Prices:  Please inquire; many are custom orders.
